Description

Description

Our welcoming cottage overlooks Oak Bluffs Harbor and Sunset Lake across Washington Park. It’s a short walk to Circuit Avenue, where you’ll find anything from arcades to artisan’s wares; the Tabernacle and Campgrounds, famous for gingerbread houses and tree-lined streets; world renowned Flying Horses Carousel, oldest Merry-Go-Round in the US.

Built by a ship builder, the house has warm bead board interiors and many interesting built-ins. One renter this year described the house as ''magical.'' Others said, ''This is a brilliant house!'' and ''This sweet cottage feels like an old friend.''

There’s a bright and cheerful kitchen, with a vintage soapstone sink. The TV room has a spacious window seat, perfect for naps or reading. The large wraparound porch overlooks Washington Park, Sunset Lake and Oak Bluffs harbor. It’s perfect for coffee, drinks, conversation and dining. There are 6 bedrooms, 2 full baths, plus a large outdoor shower. Upstairs bedrooms have steeple ceilings. Two bedrooms have harbor views. The master bedroom has a queen bed, with sunrise view of the sun glinting off the ocean. Two bedrooms have double beds, two bedrooms have bunk beds. There is a “secret” bedroom over the kitchen with 2 twins, a favorite of young people. The house is great for 2 families or an extended family, equally cozy for a couple.

Not only is it a short walk to town but within five minutes you can be at the beach or walking through the woods. Also convenient for guests sharing cars, or would rather the convenience of leaving the car at home. Mainland ferries are within walking distance and there is an easily accessible bus system that travels all over the island. If walking isn’t your thing, you can also bike or drive to 5 other towns and over 116 extraordinary preserved public beach, pond, wooded and wilderness areas open to the public. If you’d rather stay closer to home, we have a large back yard, perfect for children, with a hammock for 2. Washington Park is right in front of the house, and it’s a great place to fly kites, play ball, or people watch. Nearby are the Ocean View Restaurant, a favorite of islanders for lunch and dinner and Our Market, where you can pick up liquor and groceries. For those of you who just can’t unplug, there is a TV and wireless internet access. In addition to the kitchen table and a large dining room table, there’s also a table that seats 6 to 8 on the porch. The house can easily accommodate 12+ people for dinner, with plenty of seating and dishware.

Excellent Oak Bluffs Vacation Home

I recently rented this wonderful home. The layout of the house easily accommodates a large group. I had 3 teenage boys with me and we never tripped on anyone's toes. It's ideally located, a very short walk to the bay and the main strip on Circuit Avenue. I have rented many vacation homes on the Vineyard, and this property certainly lives up to the many reviews, has a well equipped kitchen and large dining room. The location is ideal, close enough to the action and yet far enough for quiet time on the great porch. I hope to return next year. show more show less

Favorite Family Retreat Spot.

Our family has been coming to this very special cottage for many years for our annual family gathering. It has been perfect for us in so many ways. The house is always clean, well equipped & uncluttered. It has 6 bedrooms, the location is within walking distance to the beach, shops & restaurants. The porch provides a view of the harbor and is steps away from a large park. It is loved by all ages. The owners are readily available and responsible. And we plan to return for many years to come!

Excellent week at SeaSaw

If you are looking for a beautiful home away from home to spend your MV vacation, SeaSaw is the place. The house is well maintained and has all the amenities you will need to have a fun filled getaway. The house is located within walking distance of the heart of Oak Bluffs, the harbor and the beach. My friends didn't want to leave. We will definitely rent this house again. Thanks Jim and Deb for allowing us access to your wonderful house.

The Best Ever

My family and I spent two wonderful weeks in Oak Bluffs vacationing at Seasaw! The large "cottage" was perfect, from the wrap around porch with views of the harbor to the warm nautical feel of the home. The bedrooms were quaint and comfortable, the kitchen was not only highly functional but uniquely laid out and fully equipped. We loved that our children could walk into town, various beaches and the Campground Cottages. Our hosts Jim and Deb were on top of everything and called to make sure that we were happy! We can't wait to return next summer!!! show more show less

Martha's Vineyard vacation

What a delightful home to spend a memorable week with family and friends on MVI. The home has everything you need to prepare fine meals and dine indoors or outdoors in style. Walking distance to Oak Bluff attractions contributed to convenience and fun. We would definitely choose this home for our next MVI adventure.

Great place for a large group!

This place was great for our extended family. Lovely home and great location. Love the porch! I could have spent my entire vacation just sitting there! And the "secret " bedroom was a fun surprise . We have spent many vacations on the island and this has to be the best place yet.

July 4th family reunion

We looked for just the right home to accommodate our family over the 4th. Our two daughters with their husbands and our 4 grandchildren all under 4 years old found this property to be perfect for our needs. With all the bedrooms, large porch and open living room/dining room we never felt crowded. The cottage was well maintained and well supplied from cooking utensils to board games. The location was perfect. Walk to everything yet just far enough away not to be affected by noise from downtown O.B. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. PS. Doesn't hurt to have an excellent restaurant next door. show more show less

Picture Perfect Vacation!

We spent a week in this spacious, beautiful home. There were 12 of us total, 8 kids and 4 adults. Everyone had a comfortable place to sleep. The kids especially liked the bunk beds and the secret room above the kitchen. The location was perfect for everyone. The kids ages 6-17 could walk to town for ice cream , the Flying Horses or the arcade. The front porch was so relaxing with beautiful views of the park and harbor. Walking to town took minutes and was the perfect way to start each day. Jetty Beach is also a very short walk, and State Beach with the famous "Jaws Bridge" is just a short drive. The Ocean View Restaurant is right next door for a quick take out order. The outdoor shower was a dream, and never ran out of hot water,,, 12 showers later! There is also a grocery/convenience store directly across the street. Everything made easy! The house was super clean and inviting, and the laundry facilities an extra bonus! Plus, we had perfect weather! Thank you so much for a memorable stay! We hope to book this house again next summer!! show more show less

Lovely stay for an Oak Bluffs wedding

Our family stayed at SeeSaw for a weekend wedding. It accommodated all nine of us comfortably - including four children, ages 21 months to 7 1/2 years. My older daughter and her family took the two bedrooms downstairs, and my younger daughter and her family took two of the three bedrooms upstairs. Although there was still one bedroom there unoccupied, I enjoyed staying in the "secret bedroom" over the kitchen - once I found it, that is! It is very cleverly concealed.

The dining room table accommodated all of us for dinner, and the wonderful kitchen table was a perfect place for the children to snack - that is, when they weren't on the front porch, which was everyone's favorite place! There is a fan for each room and a good supply of nightlights, which we very much appreciated. The house is a charming one, comfortable and well equipped, and we wanted for nothing. The location is excellent, and the owners kind and helpful from our first contact. We had a wonderful stay here. show more show less
